Swedish Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Studenternas IP (Uppsala).

Under present condition, this game is a battle of equals, Sirius is 13th in the table and Elfsborg in a not-so-better 11th place.

The game is a do-or-die battle for both the teams with 6 games remaining in the competition. Both teams will be looking to be in a place far better than where they are right now.

Sirius has the advantage of playing the match in their own backyard. But things do not look good for them on paper. Their last match with Norrkoping ended in a 1-1 draw. Poor possession was outlined in their gameplay. Their forwards failed to properly time their runs, resulting in numerous off-sides.

Last two matches for Elfsborg was a total opposite to each other. After they won 1-0 against the third place Hammarby away, they lost 3-0 at home to BK Hacken. They committed 18 fouls in the match and squandered possession. The team is nothing but unpredictable. But they only lost once in last 6 games.

Both the teams has a good chance of finishing top 10 if they can perform well on the pitch. So the match is going to be a close one, as both the teams will come all guns blazing.

Sirius vs Elfsborg Prediction

Sirius has managed to draw 3 of their last 6 games. But in the entire season they have only managed to win 1 from their 12 games. So a home win here is a distant possibility.

Recent away run of Elfsborg is much better. They are unbeaten in 3 of last 5 away matches and lost only one game in last 6 matches. Thus, the visitors are in with a much better chance of nicking a point.

Elfsborg are 5 points above Sirius and will be looking keen to score past the sorry defenders of Sirius who have conceded 52 goals already in this season.
